What is a Sir Knight 

      The Master Mason or Sir Knight, often becomes a second father to the young men and boys who look up to him for guidance and support. 

     The Sir Knight is always there to help his young Knights with problems they want to discuss.  He becomes a source of information and wisdom, but more importantly someone who cares.

     To young Knights, the world can be confusing, even frightening.  Problems often seem overwhelming and impossible.  The terrible statistics we hear about today's teenagers truly reflect their need for guidance. 

     When unemployment, alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide run rampant among the youth, the CONCERN MASON who is willing to devote some of his time is truly a welcome ray of hope.

     Although Sir Knights provide their young Knights with support, independent thinking is stressed above all.

    The Sir Knight may act like a father in many ways, but he gives room for growth and emphasizes that the young Knights must learn to make decisions on his own.

     The Sir Knight assist in building moral character, and contributing to the lofty principles to the life of your communities.

     The Sir Knights are always striving together to prepare our Youth Knights to be leaders for tomorrow. 

     The purpose being to teach the principles of good citizenship and be trained in the values of charity and benevolence, the virtues of a wholesome and good life. 

                   "No Man Stands So Straight, As When He Stoops To Help A Boy" 


What is a Youth Knight

     A Youth Knight is a young man between the ages of 9 through 20 who will carry on what we have begun.  The Knight is going to sit where we are, and when we are gone; he will attend to those things that we think are important. 

     We can adopt all the policies, but how they will be carried out will depend upon the type of training that a Knight will receive today from us.  The Youth Knight will take over our Colleges and Universities, Churches, even our State and National Government.  Our work will be judged on how well we, as Prince Hall Masons, have prepared our Youth Knights.  The future will be in their hands. 

     Our collective objective should be to FOCUS today's Youth towards becoming educated and responsible enough to interact in a global society.   

     We believe it was Disraeli who said, "The Youth of a nation are trustee of prosperity."  The leaders and sponsors of our Knights of Pythagoras should receive a warm hand for the fine leadership they are giving the boys today. 

     The teaching of the Youth Knights provide the substance which eliminates Pythagoras members from the roles of those recognized in juvenile delinquency.   Many Pythagoreans will soon be in places of power and prominence.  Members of Pythagoras are the heritage from which are provided the leaders of tomorrow.  Many young men of today need Pythagorean teaching and high principles in their formative years of life to adulthood. 

     It is comforting to note that the principles and truth of Masonic teaching date back to the very beginning of time, and these provide the guidance, advice and counsel through which Pythagoreans may prosper.  By following these teachings, the leaders of our boys believe that young men learn to be better citizens and leaders, thereby providing a better world of tomorrow. 

     It is because of your faithfulness and leadership being given our boys that you deserve our sincere thanks.
